Should speed bumps be placed on some of Port's residential streets?
Having lived in Port for several years I have seen the total disregard of safety for the children, pedestrians, pets etc. by the speed demons in our rsidential community.
These speed demons are not out of towners, but folks that live a block or two away from where they are commiting this violation. Why do these individuals feel that they need to race their vehicles especially when the speed limit is only 30 miles per hour. Families move here because ofthe close commute to the city, our schools, our homes etc. So why destroy the quality of life of endangering the rest of us and violating our RIGHTS as peaceful residents of this community. Our police officers do the best that they can. They cannot be everywhere. I had a discussion with one of our local officer's concerning the speed of vehicles other than on Port Blvd., Shore Road, and Main street. He agreed that a number of accidents that occur is because of speed in town. I was further advised that vehicles have been pulled over on Port Blvd. for speeding in excess of 70 miles per hour. Please keep in mind this is a 30 mile per hour road. Our community roads are not meant to be individual drag strips so an individual can see how fast their new car can get up and go.
I appreciate individual thoughts and solutions that the group can come up with.
